GARC, in collaboration with the Society for Animal and Range Development (SARD), facilitated the formation of a One Health Taskforce for Rabies Control and Prevention in Somaliland.
Rabies Elimination Progress
The Stepwise Approach towards Rabies Elimination (SARE) is a practical planning, monitoring and evaluation tool to guide, develop and refine rabies control programmes. It provides measurable steps, designed as a logical flow of activities, to progress from Stage 0 to Stage 5, in efforts towards freedom from dog-transmitted rabies.
A SARE score of 0 out of 5 signifies that basic information on the epidemiology of the disease is being compiled and that rabies is recognized as an endemic disease.
This country is not currently using the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin.
